**11/30/16 Weather update: It looks like the weather will hold out for our annual Tree Hunt! Rain is in the forecast for Friday and Saturday, with temperatures hovering just above freezing. We hope you will join us! Find out more**

It's Tree Hunt time!

Join the Land Trust for this fun, festive annual event! Search for the perfect holiday tree while helping restore the native forests of the Metolius Preserve.

The Tree Hunt will be held at the Land Trust's Metolius Preserve North Trailhead.

Other important details:

  • We will be cutting grand fir trees
  • Trees are free-range and not sculpted to be the perfect Christmas tree. But they are beautiful and available in lots of sizes.
  • Trees are scattered throughout the forests of the Metolius Preserve so you will have to hunt for them!
  • Bring your own hand saw (no chainsaws please), gloves, and rope
  • Dogs are allowed on leash only
  • Dress for the weather
  • We'll provide warm drinks!

There is a suggested $10 donation.

The Tree Hunt will be held weather permitting! Please call or check our website for weather updates and directions.

The Fine Print: The Tree Hunt has been held since 2003 and we’re pleased to report that you are doing a fabulous job restoring
our forest! However, it also means that trees ripe for cutting are getting further afield. Please be prepared to hunt accordingly.
